Today, after weeks of patience, my sweet little boy has had a breakthrough in Reading. I remember last year getting so frustrated and impatient with him. I was ready to give up homeschooling all together. Thanks to The Maxwells and Teri's Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit, and of course the Lord God, I feel that I am doing the right thing. A lot of the times it is not the children but our won attitudes as to why we get so frustrated. I remember the second day of school this year, I got so frustrated with Bryson that I raised my voice and he started balling. Then I started crying, I had to apologize to him and to God for my attitude. He is just a little boy. I am still new at this and have a lot to learn. We just started homeschooling last year and Hannah was in the 3rd grade, so she already knew how to read and her basic math. But I know through the grace of God, I can do this. Children are such little gifts from God and I could not see me doing anything else except being here with these children all day teaching and learning from them about how great our Saviour is. I just thought I would share this. Here is the picture of my proud little boy and the first book he read, "Tip" by A beka Books k4 program.

I've been meaning to come to your blog for some time now. I'm glad that I did. I hope that your weight loss goes well. I feel for you. I just started a weight loss blog myself. I started using my hsblogger website but decided it wouldn't work the same on that website being that it's not just a blogging website. I think I already responded to your comment about the book you liked? If not I've not read that book in particular but we do like his Maker's Diet book a lot actually.

Your little ones are just precious. I love the one of your daughter with a bonnet on. Hey, it's a great hair net :)

Love, Pam
